Salvation: What Are We Saved From and How?

The Bible says everyone has sinned and deserves death. Only through Christ’s sacrifice can we be delivered from sin and death and offered salvation.

God wants to offer everyone the chance to be saved from sin and its result—death. “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

Salvation is a gift of God, given by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Upon repentance and baptism, God forgives us from our past sins. We then begin a lifelong process of repentance and growing in grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Those called to salvation now will be saved at the return of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of the saints. But what about the rest of mankind—those who did not understand Christ’s sacrifice now?
